George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston closed a terminal's security checkpoint and the ticketing counter Sunday evening "due to staffing issues associated with the partial shutdown of the federal government."

The airport said the checkpoint and counter closed at 3:30 PM and will remain closed the rest of the day.

Flights from Terminal B are expected to continue as normal, the airport said.

Flyers are being encouraged to arrive early since they are being directed to the ticket counters and TSA checkpoints located in Terminal C and Terminal E.

It's unclear if the closure will continue after Sunday.
